Owners’ Comments:
“Draping a wall that is 45’  wide and 11’ tall with an opaque sheer was a challenge, but our seamstress Tammi LeNair amazed us with her mastery, magically making the lighted mirror appear to be floating among the folds.”
Judges’ Comments:
“The custom-made drapery adds softness to the large contemporary space and the round lighted mirrors throughout the salon unify the décor.”—Hillenmeyer
“The salon kept the overall message of its brand with color and space”—Crisafulli
“The curtains with the floating mirrors cultivates a theatrical look in the room.” —Martin
